Welcome to Rapidly Rotating Records, bringing you vintage music to which you can't *not* tap your toes, from rapidly rotating 78 RPM records of the 1920s and'30s.
On this week's edition of the show, we're going to visit the park, we'll take a musical trip to Monterey, encounter some ragamuffins, make an appointment with the podiatrist and await the dawn. All of the segment topics on this week's show have one thing in common. If you haven't figured out what it is by the end of the show, you'll find out then.
